Climb Ev’ry Mountain

There comes a time where you’re on the brink of losing control, the edge of the cliff, a despicable wall of blankness in front of you.  And then, suddenly there is daybreak, a cool breeze, a respite.  Whoever said that new and exciting things were all about fun? They are much more about the fear of leaving behind the comfortable and stepping in to the unknown.  Me and a  lot … Continue reading “Climb Ev’ry Mountain”

Rapid fire!

Running a little low on self-fuelled inspiration, I’m taking up a NaBloPoMo prompt (Your cue to laugh at the acronym again – go ahead).  I picked this up from Milan’s blog – she’s also doing the thirty day challenge J Apparently, American talk show host James Lipton asks these ten questions on his show – Inside the Actors’ Studio – and I’m going to answer them with as little thought … Continue reading “Rapid fire!”

A New Backpack

2013 has been so good to me Had to pack my bags every couple of months The travel folder in my Mailbox has been alive and kicking Almost exhausted myself writing travelogues I’ve had to fight opinions and advice about spending on travels. And this is exactly what I had to tell them. I’ve already got a couple of ideas for the next year: Buy a new backpack Meet some … Continue reading “A New Backpack”


Today, my colleague Abdullah shared a video with me – he’s a big fan of Australian television shows and often sends me quirky and funny things to brighten my day.  All of us know of John Lennon’s Imagine. But this will take it to a different level altogether. After you watch this, I promise you will never not think of Emmanuel Kelly, when you hear the following lines: “Imagine there’s … Continue reading “Imagine…”

Some Days Are Just Like That…

There are moments when you forget all your worries All the heart breaks All what matters to you, all what doesn’t Some days are just like that. There are the hours that you wish would last forever When you could gaze upon the Sun And feel full of warmth Some days are just like that. There is that time when you’re desperately trying to remember a dream Make sense of … Continue reading “Some Days Are Just Like That…”

The Obituary Of Waves

I read this on my reader and for a moment fell in love with the thought.  I wanted this to never get lost, so am re-posting here. *** Waves. Nobody ever writes them. No one stops and thinks about how they come to an end, using up their dying breath to sometimes crash passionately against the rocks and sometimes kiss the sand tenderly before disappearing. I wonder if the waves … Continue reading “The Obituary Of Waves”

Paradise Falls

I’ve lifted this video and the inspiration to this post off a friend’s blog.   How could I not.   There are love stories and then there are these.   Pixar has and continues to transport us into a world which we might never be able to visit with their imagination and belief in magic.   This part of the 2009 animation movie ‘Up’ is beyond words.   Eight minutes of living … Continue reading “Paradise Falls”

Life Of Pi

I haven’t had the opportunity to read the novel by the same name – but was recently introduced to a glimpse of the cinematic representation of Man Booker Prize winning novel. Scheduled for a release in December 2012, there was something about the trailer that moved me. Perhaps the background score, a glimpse of Ang Lee’s directorial genius, the presence of a Royal Bengal Tiger named Richard Parker in the … Continue reading “Life Of Pi”

Omnia mea mecum porto

The latest addiction has been in the form of yet another TV show. My dear friend at work Shonali had often quoted the show to be intelligent and fun but I never really had the opportunity to download and watch them. The newly discovered free Wi-Fi at work has made my last few weeks here rather eventful. Bones is an American crime comedy-drama television series that premiered in 2005. The … Continue reading “Omnia mea mecum porto”
